Dozens of Doughnuts By Carrie Finison & Brianne Farley

Back of Book:

LouAnn (a bear) is making a doughnut feast in preparation for her long winter’s nap. But just before she takes the first bite, DING DONG! Her friend Woodrow (a woodchuck) drops by. LouAnn is happy to share her doughnuts, but as soon as she and Woodrow sit down to eat, DING DING! Clyde (a raccoon) is at the door. One by one, LouAnn’s friends come over–Topsy (an opossum) and then Moufette (a skunk) and then Chip and Chomp (chipmunks)–until it’s one big party. Louann welcomes her surprise guests and makes batch after batch of doughnuts, always dividing them equally among her friends. But she makes one BIG miscalculation. Soon LouAnn’s kitchen is bare, winter is near, and she’s had nothing to eat at all!

My Review:

I received a copy of this picture book from Penguin Kids Books in exchange for an honest review.

“Dozens of Doughnuts” by debut author Carrie Finison is a story that perfectly blends a math lesson with Social and Emotional Learning. The story follows LouAnn as she prepares to eat a delicious batch of doughnuts before hibernation. As she prepares to eat, she hears someone at her door. Each time her doorbell rings, another friend arrives and her doughnuts divide. LouAnn generously shares all her doughnuts until they are completely gone. I loved the many messages that can be taught and shared within this story. Readers learn about the importance of being a good friend and sharing with others. The illustrations by Brianne Farley are delightful and will make your mouth water for a doughnut. 

This is a fantastic story that readers will enjoy hearing over and over.
